WOMEN DON’T TALK LIKE ME
FROM THE FOUNDER-TALIE MILLER
Welcome Blog 1://
Welcome to this off-kilter, sweet, crazy corner of the web I like to call mine.
Need some context? You can read all about my no-BS, outspoken journey to now right here.
This blog will explore personal brand development and other creative genius. Here, I will pay homage to the truly awesome, and call out the straight-up lousy. I’ll cover topics that beg for discussion, news that elevates, stories that inspire. I won’t promise perfection, but you can count on this being playful, curious, maddening, and definitely fun as fuck.
I cannot wait to go on this journey with you all.
WOMEN DON’T TALK LIKE ME.
The other week, I was chatting with a couple of amazing industry vets who are helping me to reframe my own personal brand endeavors and digital purpose. Ideas flowed back and forth, the creative smog was thick, when I blurted out, “Women don’t talk like me.” Their response? “That’s a great topic, Talie.”
That offhand thought, just passing through? It stuck with me.
So many women are afraid — afraid of looking uneducated, afraid of their appearance, afraid of what other people think. So often, they’re afraid of their own power. Women are taught to mind their manners, to fit into the space carved out for them, and take up no more.
Umm…I guess I missed those lessons.
As I’ve mentioned before, I don’t adult well, I don’t cook well, I don’t spell well, I don’t write well or talk well. It’s taken me a really long time to own all these don’ts! But once I stopped feeling bad about them and started actively loving them, I found so much extra space in my mind for creativity!! They are my own magic, my own self, my own personal brand. They are the essence of my Talie-ness and they aren’t going anywhere.
Individuality and a willingness to make yourself visible online are key to unlocking your hidden superpower. Think of all the keen insight, sharp opinions, and amazing reach this world is missing out on because people, especially women creatives and entrepreneurs, don’t know how to harness their abilities and are afraid to stand out in a world full of fiat influence.
I want to help you quiet geniuses find your place, mark your spot and speak your truth.
I want you to STOP worrying about the opinions of others. Your creative journey is yours alone. Your ideas are great. Your mind is powerful. Your abilities are unique. Stop worrying about making the wrong move, making a mess and looking stupid. Risk aversion makes you predictable and I can’t think of a bigger kill-joy than satisfying everyone else’s image of you.
I want to help you lean into YOU, find YOUR strength, and use it to draw out the insanely beautiful energies of YOUR individuality.
So, dear aspiring personal branders and creators, who’s with me? If you’re ready to unlock the power of your individuality and tap into the creative spring that is your mind, drop me an email to say hello.
I know I’m not the only one ready for what you have to unleash.
